All Izabella Arnold wants for Christmas is to be able to find her mom’s lost bracelet.
In November, her mom lost the silver, Pandora-type bracelet that holds sentimental value while shopping in Penticton. Now Arnold is offering a reward to whoever turns it in to the Penticton RCMP detachment, no questions asked.
“If I can find it, I want to give it to her as a Christmas present,” said Arnold.
Adorned with the family birthstones (light blue, purple and dark blue) it also had meaningful charms (a monkey and a butterfly).
“It has so much sentimental value. She has charms on it from family in Germany and Holland. There were a few tears shed when it went missing,” said Arnold, who estimated there was about 10 to 15 charms in total on it.
The family spent hours retracing their mom’s steps trying to recover it, including scouring parking lots and inquiring in the stores she was in which include Walmart, Cherry Lane Shopping Centre and M&M Meats. It also may have fallen off while she was in Summerland.
While it seems like a crap shoot if Arnold will find the bracelet for her mom, she is holding out hope that someone has seen it or picked it up.
Arnold said they have gone into the Penticton RCMP detachment alerting them that it has been lost and that there is a reward for the bracelets return.
“If we get it back my mom will be stunned, amazed. It would make her Christmas.”
